I didn't think I would love this school, but I have seen so much good the teachers, principal and PTO do to make this a good school. The only negative part is the traffic in the parking lot during pick-up. Otherwise, I believe the teachers sincerely care about the students. I am impressed to see the ...  Read more

J.C. Sawyer has an amazing parent group that makes this school a wonderful place to be a student. If there is a need, the PTO raises money to take care of it. J.C.

My son attended the 1st grade at this school coming from Raleigh and was a little ahead so he was bored at the beginning. His teacher was wonderful and she was very good at giving the kids one on one attention. I did not care for the principal too much, he seemed to always 'pass the buck' when issues ...  Read more

This is a ethnically and economically mixed school which presents a lot of problems. The school has great parental involvement and some great teachers although some ridicule the children and use southern type discipline. The academic standard is low compared to other states. Most Coast Guard families ...  Read more
